Thanks to all who reply/replied.

To me dev mailing lists like this one create a community. I like things that make it personal. I have been on many mailing lists long enough that I know most all the players. I also know something about them as people.

Like now I know that chri enjoys funny cat videos.

I know that Lisp is commonly a destination and generally not a starting point. I know there are many who would love to use Lisp but do not get the opportunity because technical decisions are made by someone else. Fortunately, I get to make the technical decisions for myself. My only requirement is that the tool be able to accomplish the task. I see very little that PicoLisp can't accomplish with the exception of programming directly to the hardware as in drivers and such. I could even be wrong there. :)

I am glad this is a friendly community. I read off and on comp.lang.lisp many years ago. Sometimes Erik Naggum was helpful, sometimes not. He was brilliant but not in social matters. RIP Erik.

Again thanks to all for welcoming me into your community.

I did too. Sometimes I really enjoy unnecessary things.
Like this video, that I could watch several times in a row:
laughing to tears.
